For more than 150 years, The Salvation Army has assisted Idahoans in need by providing educational opportunities, meals and other social services. Locally, The Salvation Army’s work has been enhanced by a brand-new facility in Boise. Idaho Power was a lead donor on the project, contributing $50,000.
“We’re so thankful to Idaho Power and other great donors who helped make this facility possible — it really belongs to our whole community, because we couldn’t have done it without them,” said Boise Corps Officer Major Tom Stambaugh.
The new building features a food pantry, a chapel, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, administrative offices and the campus of The Salvation Army’s Booth School, which provides educational services for pregnant and parenting Treasure Valley teens.
“The Salvation Army’s contributions to our community are many, ranging from feeding those in need to providing high-school education for those who may otherwise be at risk of being sidelined,” said Brian Buckham, Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Idaho Power.
Idaho Power and The Salvation Army are longtime partners in Project Share, a program that helps customers in need pay their energy bills. To learn more about Idaho Power’s community involvement, visit idahopower.com/community.
